OutKast Paradigm has been turning heads in the industry as it began as an online store for men’s urban clothing and streetwear. Boasting as a fast rising brand in an ample period of time, the edgy urban wear can now be seen on celebrities, print and runway models to stylists, bloggers, travellers and the like.
Founded by Benj Bolivar, Cris Lomotan & Lito Trinidad, this collection of edgy urban wear has been making waves in the Philippine fashion industry since last year with their vision that it’s ok to stand out and be different. With a growing number of the young and hip local stars and fashion enthusiasts sporting their unique clothing, we can definitely see this brand will continue to grow into new fashion and style ventures.

(Personally, this is my favorite, polka dot anything in neutrals, yes please.)
Then enter M Barretto, a renowned menswear fashion designer in the Philippine fashion scene who is back after a 2-year hiatus by partnering with the OutKast Paradigm team.
M has quietly created a name in the industry for his affinity for signature classics with a subtlety of proportions redefined. He even gained a larger following after gaining commercial work recognition with collaborations with brands such as Folded & Hung and Bench.
Together, they’ve made a capsule collection at the Manila Fashion Festival. Launched at the Soma Space, Green Sun located in Makati, this partnership creates a fashion brainchild that offers M Baretto’s signature clean lines, sensibility, and movement to the edgy and youthful feel of OutKast Paradigm’s style. Looks ranging from varsity jackets, hoodies, button-down tees and the item to go which made a name for OutKast Paradigm in the local scene, the joggers are now ready to be availed in limited editions.
